Hibernaculum Joy of a Toy cider
Field blend cider spontaneously fermented on top of unpressed Norton pomace in stainless with no added sulfites. Unfined and unfiltered. Jefferson, MD grown fruit. 10% abv.
Vinification — A field blend of cider apples from our friends at Distillery Lane Ciderworks were rack and cloth pressed and poured on top of the unpressed Norton pomace from Fahey. Spontaneously fermented in a square stainless tank with no added sulfites, enzymes or additives. Free run for bottling.
Tasting Notes — Bright acid and glowing cranberry and red cherry fruit. Reminiscent of vibrant carbonic Gamay.
